Who ever thought of spending a night in Van Gogh’s iconic ‘bedroom’?? Well, the ad gurus at Leo Burnett did! And so the Art Institute of Chicago recreated the room and it is now on rent for $10 a night on Airbnb! 

In a one of a kind experience of an iconic work of art by master artist Van Gogh, the famous painting of his bedroom in Arles, France has been converted into a livable model! Starting tomorrow, 14th February, art aficionados can grab this opportunity in a historical downtown Chicago building. 

This idea has been executed in tandem with a Van Gogh exhibition, in which, for the first time in North America, all three versions of the famous ‘bedroom’ will be on display, along with some other works. “This room will make you feel like you’re living in a painting,” reads the ad on Airbnb. “It’s decorated in a Post-Impressionist style, reminiscent of Southern France and times gone by. Its furniture, bright colors, and artwork will give you the experience of a lifetime.”

To commemorate the art exhibit, the Art Institute of Chicago along with the creative directors at Burnett and media agency Spark built this full-scale livable model. This allows people to understand the way Van Gogh lived, and enjoy the art, as a truly immersive experience. With that concept, they got to work and executed a near-perfect version of the painting – right from the peeling-off green-brown effect on the floorboards to the upholstery on the chair and the design of the hooks for hanging towels  – and even the paintings hung on the walls! 

At just $10 a night, including two tickets to the exhibition, no art geek would ever miss it!
